Chemistry of Organic Germanium, Tin & Lead Compoundsby Saul Patai
Synopses & Reviews
This is the first book to deal with C-Ge, C-Sn and C-Pb bonds as functional groups. This concept helps to better understand the chemistry of these compounds, which find an increasing amount of applications. The volume concentrates on analytical aspects, and on safety and toxicology in the environment.
This volume is now available in electronic format from Books Online.
Book News Annotation:
As in other volumes in the series, contributing authors were directed not to give encyclopedic coverage of their subjects but to concentrate on the most important recent developments, and mainly on material that has not been adequately covered by reviews or other secondary sources. The intended readers are assumed to be at an advanced postgraduate level. After an introductory chapter dealing with the general and theoretical aspects of the group, 18 subsequent chapters discuss the group's characterization and characteristics, formation and synthetic uses, and some special topics.
